Spring is finally here, let’s make the most of spring! As things start to warm up, it’s time to find a perfect drink to help us cool down. If you’re looking for something that is both refreshing and delicious, look no further than mango green tea lemonade iced with honey. This drink is the perfect combination of sweet and tart flavors, making it an ideal choice for any occasion. Let’s break down why it’s so great.
The Ingredients Make All the Difference
If you can’t tell by now, I just love my mango teas or anything mango to be exact. I even did a mango mint punch a few years ago as well. However, this mango green tea lemonade is made with three simple ingredients – mangoes, green tea, and lemon juice. The mangoes bring a sweetness that pairs perfectly with the tartness of the lemons. The green tea helps to add a subtle earthiness and depth of flavor to the mix. And adding a bit of honey gives it just enough sweetness without overpowering everything else in the drink. All together, these three ingredients create an unbeatable flavor combination that will have your taste buds singing!
Health Benefits Galore
Not only does this drink taste great, but it also has a ton of health benefits! Mangoes are packed with antioxidants which can help protect against chronic illnesses such as heart disease or cancer. Green tea has been shown to reduce stress levels, improve brain function, and boost the immune system. And lemons are high in Vitamin C which can help keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant. This makes mango green tea lemonade not only tasty but healthy too!
Easy To Make At Home
If you’re feeling adventurous, you can easily make this delicious drink at home! I’m sharing how you can make it with your instant pot or your stovetop in the recipe below, but you can also do this in your blender. All you need is some fresh mangos, green tea leaves or bags, lemons, honey (or sugar), and ice cubes (or crushed ice). Simply blend all these ingredients together in a blender until smooth then pour over some ice cubes or crushed ice for an extra-cold treat! It’s perfect for those hot summer days when you need something refreshing yet flavorful to quench your thirst.
